    Been wanting a pcp pistol as a fun plinker and we (Canada) are VERY limited here with choice and the fact that all air pistols regardless of whether you have a firearms license are limited to 500fps.

    I was considering an hw44, but i think it would be overkill considering its neutered in our version.   Should get here Wednesday and got it in .22.   Will hopefully be quiet enough to shoot indoors being it has much less power than Gregors in the videos below.

    Giles did a good review of it as did Gregor.  Hes adjusted it to over 20fpe,  and getting good 25m accuracy!  It's also is regulated and it is externally adjustable like the impact and crown,  has HST adjustment too.

    Nice!

    I just saw one of these for sale here in the classifieds.  That was a first..  These are Very Cool!
    I really dig now adjustable and customizable they are.  Congrats on your new pistol, and enjoy!

    I have the Modair model in .177 and it’s a fun gun.  Got a red dot on it and shooting coke cans at 20 yards with it.  Wish I would have bought a .22 cal one instead to squirrel hunt with when in the deer stand.

    You'll love it! It have mine in .22 also.

    However, it is a noisy bugger. I shoot mine at 10FPE. You'll need to get an adapter like this one from Donny FL (click here)  DonnyFL Adapter for about $40 and attach a moderator if you don't want to disturb family indoors. 

    Regulator creep was a problem for mine. I wouldn't really worry if only using it to shoot paper indoors. However, I plan on using it for pesting and wanted the first shots to be consistent with the rest so bought a Huma Regulator. 

    I agree with Tazhunter. A red dot is a nice addition to the gun.

    It'll be like a UK spec one 6fpe or so and no moderators allowed up here.  I bought it to shoot inside mostly so I can detune it a bit if it still snaps or barks too much for my liking,  looking forward to it.  Yeah red dot is the way to go I think for it,  had no idea Huma made a reg for it that's excellent. 

    Thanks guys!

    Funny, I ordered one in .22 earlier tonight from your neck of the woods as well. Was on the fence as my prod (cheaper pcp) became more pricey after I threw money at it. I feel even if a huma reg is needed it will still be a nice addition for me. My prod is now a carbine so a pistol will be a warm welcome again.  I plan to put a donny sumo on it if my tatsu from the prod doesn’t tame it.  If it proves itself I will try and point it at a rat or two…hundred.

    I've always found their pistols super interesting! I remember eyeballing them when that green handled one came out. Good for you man! That'll be fun to tinker with :)

    Question, Glem – so in Canada, if you bought something like that, could you legally put a stock on it and make it a carbine?

    Yeah actually that folding stock that gregor shows in the first video is available.  Its actually under 20$ usd.  I saw it was kind of flimsy and didnt bother but i might still get it.  We dont get bullpups with a removable stock for some reason, but we do get leshiy and impact,  but no Wildcats or other Edguns yet.

    For powder burners we get mtars and vectors etc but they would be restricted so you basically can take them to the range from home go shoot and come straight back.  Same with all powder burner pistols theyre restricted here.  But other guns like hunting rifles, shotguns are non restricted so you can take them out on public land and shoot or what have you.  Air rifles above 500fps are non restricted here.  No power limit but you need a firearms licence.  I have both restricted and non restricted license but i still cant get a pcp pistol that shoots over 500fps legally.  Sick isnt it?

    Just FYI, mine was plagued by the creeping regulator issue and I finally got it sorted out a few weeks ago.  The first shot is now perfectly reliable, for example these are the first 5 shots after the gun had been sitting idle an entire week:

    Over on GTA, Hobbyman2007 started a thread regarding how he fixed his.  

    https://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=150303

    I followed his advice but tweaked a few things to get mine working, and I added a rather lengthy explanation in the thread about the underlying theory if anyone is interested.

    Mine is a .177 and I originally tuned it to about 13fpe but later decided to try backing it down, and I pick it up all the time now because it's accurate, lightweight, and gets a lot of shots per fill.

    It will do bugholes at 25 yards when I really focus.

    I bought mine in September 2018. I love the feel, grip and balance. I bought the S-A for the iron sights, but they are terrible. They are adjustable in windage only, not elevation. The factory sightline is exactly parallel to the barrel. Consequently the gun shoots low at even the shortest distance. Now if you do not need the iron sights, this issue is of no consequence. However for me, I needed the iron sights. I can pick up a target much faster with iron sights than with any other system and I wanted this pistol for pesting at short range. I located an excellent fully adjustable rear sight from CZ for 75 Euro, but it required cutting the rear dovetail longer. No problem for me I have a milling machine, but the rear sight now sat higher than the OEM sight, so now I needed a taller front sight and of course there are none, so I made one. Again, no problem. As I was adjusting the sights in, after about 50 shots, everything went haywire. The regulator totally failed. and the tank gauge reads very low. Additionally, when filling, as the tank pressure approached 200 bar the tank started leaking, so the most pressure I could achieve was 180 bar. In any case the gun was guaranteed. I turned in to the dealer and he stated about 3 weeks turn around time for repair. that was in November. I have no status from the dealer or the distributor that he sent it to. I asked the dealer for status by email last week and I still have heard nothing. I will post my results as things occur.

    When I first got the pistol, it shot very consistently at 600 fps and grouped well at 15 meters, but the barrel measured right at 5.5 mm and there is no choke, so the pellets need to be large, 5.52 mm minimum. It is loud though. The shipping box has a cut out in the foam for one, but depending on the country of sale, one may or may not be included in the purchase.
